12. Take a Boat Tour


The Emerald Cave is a natural phenomenon that is one of the most beautiful caves in the whole of Italy. 
Located in-between Amalfi and Praiano, the Smeraldo Cave is one of the few caves in the world that is bathed in natural emerald light. The effect is simply amazing and the color of the water and the cave itself are gorgeous.

The cave is accessed via an elevator on the SS163 route and then you can climb on one of the boats for a guided tour of this superb natural subterranean environment.

11. Chair Lift, Capri


If hiking is not your thing, and you are not afraid of heights, hop on the open-air chair lift in Anacapri and let it sweep you up to the top of the Monte Solaro. The views over the bay towards Naples and Vesuvius are truly breathtaking. Spend some time taking in that view with a cup of coffee or a flute of prosecco at the scenic café, the Canzone del Cielo.
